Do you want to see more like this in 2018?

Can you donate $20 or $50 so we can make more Ñews y Satire?
MR. POCHO SAYS ¡GRACIAS!

✊🏽 We like making POCHO’s Ñews y Satire for you every day, but it takes money. Can you please help?

✊🏽 We like to afflict the comfortable, comfort the afflicted, and mock the pendejos.

✊🏽 Please, can you help?

😱 POCHO has no big backers, no mega investors, no brand-name “sponsors.” We get a trickle of revenue from Google Adsense (it barely pays the iPhone bill) and that’s all.

No one owns us, no one tells us what we can or cannot do. But independence ain’t free. We’re hoping to raise some extra cash from you, our loyal readers.

✊🏽 Can you help?

With Net Neutrality gone, it is even more critical that we maximize our technical infrastructure for connectivity, bandwidth, compatibility and speed.

Also we need to redesign the website, and maybe someday pay our hard-working editors, talented writers, visionary photographers, and kick-ass cartoonists. Oh yes, and our pinches lawyers tambien.

✊🏽 Can you help?

Your small donation will keep the Ñews y Satire flowing. Click on the DONATE button to give. We thank you for your support.

 

Con Safos,
Los Pochodores
